Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! 
While I am here cooking this morning I was thinking on all the things I am thankful for.  
Psalm 37:25 I once was young, and now am old; yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor their children begging for bread.
In a few months I will be 60 years old; and I must say that this verse is true of me. Through all the trials I have endured my 60 years God has never forsaken me. 
I am so Thankful that HE saved me, that HE loved me when no one else did, that HE worked HIS power in my life to change me to be a "daughter of a KING".

I am so Thankful for all of you who stop by every week and leave comments, you do not know  how much it blesses me and I do consider many of you my friends; though I have not meet you face to face I pray for you daily when I hear of your troubles. And I know one day we will see each other when we get HOME.

At the moment I am unable to do any crafting; the room which all of my stuff is in, is being worked on, so I have stuff every where. Hopefully it will be done by Dec 1.. But until then I will still be stopping by to see all the fabulous things you have been creating.

To all of you who stop by my blog, Thank you and God Bless you and Keep you.
Sending you Hugs & Blessings :).

PS Hoped you enjoyed the video by Kristina, she has some great videos.

Hi all. 
This is my last week out of work. As some of you know those of us who have senior years took a temporary layoff to save the less senior people.   By senior I mean we who took it had 35 years to 40 years employment verses the young crowd who had only 2 to 4 years.  But we are all being called back to work for Monday. And we senior folks have decided we will not do this any more.  I feel bad for these newer people in that many bought homes when they were hired, and our company is down sizing big time. From 4 buildings to one.. I have 6 more years before I can retire, I pray I make it, if not, I know My Father has a plan laid out just for me. So I have total peace. I do not know how the world can live without Jesus, I do know that my life has been so sweet with HIM, through all my trials I have had peace in knowing HE loves me and has a plan for me and I am so grateful HE saved me.

I made this card for My Favorite Things sketch challenge. I used their blue print 13 & 8 dies. I love these things. :)

This is an A2 card, I used SU Pacific point paper and my minds eye design paper. The rest are the dies from MFT. Each set has about 10 plus dies so I decided to use only the dies and no stamps for this sketch.

OK, that is it for me, I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

Safe In His Arms

Good Morning all.

Well I am off for 2 weeks, temp. layoff. We once had 4 buildings filled with people and programs and now we are down to 2 buildings and we are getting ready to close this one done and move to the one remaining. That means the company has layoff permanently  over   3000 people in the past 10 years.  Things are not looking good here in RI.

But, I know that my Father in Heaven will take care of me, I am safe in HIS ARMS, HE is the one who opens and closes doors, HE is the one who gives us favor, He is the one who owns the cattle on a thousand hills. The God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob is my Father, and what He did for them and their children He will still do today if we believe and trust HIM, we will be in perfect peace.

That is why I hopped on done to Newport to see my BF Karen yesterday to make cards :). We always have such a great time together, talking & creating. She has some great stuff and a very creative mind.

I made this card for the sketch challenge over at splitcoast stampers

 And this is the one she made for my son 

These cards was made with the Willington bear decoupage kit, and the card base is from SU. The time piece is from Tim Holtz.

Well that is it for me, remember me in your prayers. Hugs :)

You are on my mind

Good Morning all you fabulous card makers. I have been up since 6 am, that is early for me since I work second shift and do not go to bed until 2 am.  Usually I do not get up until 8 am. I am reading through the bible again, this will be my 12  plus time. One of my study bibles is held together with duck tape :). The bible has always been my favorite book to read, when I first began I was told by a pastor to write my name in front of verses to make it personnel, "Becky" Count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations, knowing that the trying of your faith works patience. From there I started color coding to make it easier to find subjects. I learn something new every time I read. The Word of God truly is the living Word.

Well once finished I decided to create this card for Our Daily Bread challenge "anything goes".

Items used:
Stamp: ODB Crocheted background, Flourished verses,
Ink:      ODB Terra Cotta
Dies:    ODB custom die for sentiment elegant oval, Spellbinders Fancy tags and large labels.
Other:   Prima flower.

Well that is it for me, I do pray all of you have a blessed week.

Thanks for stopping by and showing love, Hugs & Blessings :)
